The Astrocade is a second generation video game console and simple computer system designed by a team at Midway, the videogame division of Bally. It was marketed only for a limited time before Bally decided to exit the market. The rights were later picked up by a third-party company, who re-released it and sold it until around 1983. The Astrocade is particularly notable for its very powerful graphics capabilities for the time of release, and for the difficulty in accessing those capabilities.
Manuals for these games are available at the Bally Astrocade Manual Collection.
Owner's manuals for the Bally Astrocade system are available to read: the 1977 and 1981 editions.
Visitors trying out the Bally Astrocade will want to check out the Galaxian conversion of the arcade game, as well as the highly-acclaimed Incredible Wizard and Muncher game cartridges.
